When we were considering where the most perfect location might be to plant our Bluegrass and Olde Tyme Music Festival – it was (as they say in this neck of the woods) “A NO BRAINER!” to hold it in Millington TN at the Meeman Shelby Forest State Park. A beautiful West Tennessee Gem just a hop, skip and a jump from Memphis. We were thrilled with the support we received from Millington but also from all across the Mid-South and beyond – making our first fest a huge hit!

Thank you to everyone who came out and especially thank you to our volunteers – The ABOT Fest Clan – we could not have done it without you! Aquatseli (aqua-la-chay-lee) is Cherokee for “OUR” and that is ethos we desire for the festival – ownership for all who join the festival team and also for those who attend. Once again, we are programming the festival to be a family unyfing, strengthening and memory making event with activities, attractions, and of course food for all ages and all tastes. We will also be celebrating the rich history of the park, Millington, Memphis, West Tennessee and the Mid-South.

Bring the whole family . . . there will be something great for everyone!

here is just a brief list of what will take place at the festival

World Class Bluegrass & Olde Tyme Concerts on Multiple Stages
Square Dancin’ & Cloggin’
Instrument Workshops
Delicious Food located in our Food Truck Row
Artisans and Crafters in the Vendors’ Village
The Pickin’ Grove Featuring Pickin’ Parties and Open Jams
Backyard Bluegrass BBQ Brawl

& much, much, more!

If you are a stick shaker then we can assure
you that you will have more fun than
you can shake your stick at!
